Montreal, Quebec – Allstate Insurance Company of Canada plans to give back to their local community in Montreal with the announcement of a $10,000 donation to the Old Brewery Mission’s (OBM) affordable housing program.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put yet another strain on the lives of Canada’s homeless population and Allstate is hoping to do their part by supporting OBM’s housing program.
”Allstate recognizes that 2020, without question, has been a particularly challenging year for the Old Brewery Mission and the homeless community. Livelihoods are at risk during these difficult times,” says Carmine Venditti, agency manager at Allstate Canada. “As part of our long-standing relationship with the Old Brewery Mission, it is our hope to ease their financial hardship and help the homeless community in Montreal to have a safe place to call home.”
The donation will help provide living spaces for 15 people looking for a sustainable housing solution.
“This is a particularly challenging time for people living in homelessness and the agencies that serve them,” says James Hughes, president and CEO of the Old Brewery Mission. “Unfortunately, we have had to suspend or cancel crucial fundraising events, which normally generate vital funds to keep our essential services and housing programs running. We will be able to put the funds provided by Allstate Canada to good use to help our clients rebuild their lives and reintegrate into the community.”
